Norm Stone - Abortion Walk

By Editorial Staff
Published July 1, 1988

KANSAS CITY, MO (FR) – After trekking across America on foot to motivate and mobilize the nation against abortion, Rev. Norm Stone and Rev. Jerry Horn are ready to repeat the arduous ordeal again. In fact, they will be doing it seven times, beginning September 1st. Halfway through the second walk, they took a three month break to move their office and families from Wisconsin to Kansas City, Missouri.

They will be back on the road in September, beginning in Delaware. Stone said his son, Todd, a recent high-school graduate, will be joining him for the coast to coast trek. During the first walk in 1986, Stone said he and Horn received much publicity, especially because of the pro-life petition which was presented to President Reagan. Over three million signatures appeared on that petition, which called for an end to abortion in America. “We got a lot of national attention, and spoke to tens of thousands of people,” said Stone.

Horn said the first walk was to “rally the troops,” but the response was minimal. “People were not motivated by the statistics or gory pictures, but only by God’s heart.” All seven of the projected walks are scheduled to be finished by 1993.

“This second walk has been less fancy, and we haven’t had very many resources,” related Stone. “We needed to make a commitment to continue. We’re doing our part, and we’re not alone.” The organization isn’t sponsored by any national ministry, but Horn and Stone’s families are supported from monthly pledges.

The two families spend 80 percent of their time on the road, walking miles each day to bring an end to the abortion holocaust. Results are not immediate, but they believe they are making a difference “one step at a time.”

“The greatest disappointment is that we Christians see the need, and rally around it, but when things aren’t changed after two years, we put it aside,” Horn explained. “But I’m looking at the long haul. It’s easy to rally around a cause, to do sit-ins and pickets, but we’re looking at changing the heart of a nation.”

Stone agreed, adding, “Apathy is a tragedy. I want to light a fire in people’s hearts.” The long-range goals of Walk America for Life (WAFL) are to see legalized abortion come to an end; to restore right attitudes toward the value of human life; and to lift up the name of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Author of all life.

Both wives, Judi Stone and Bonnie Horn, are fully supportive of the Walk. “Walk America for Life” began in 1985 at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles. Stone and Horn logged over 100,000 miles on that journey. In 1983, they founded “Project: Save Our Babies” a non-profit educational program devoted to public discussion about the facts on abortion.

Stone said Walk America for Life was “born in my heart … during an extended fast in January of 1985. As the Lord shared His grief with us over the destruction of the unborn, we determined to answer His call to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves – no matter what the personal cost.”

Your comments are welcome!

I was just reading “Intercessory Prayer” by Dutch Sheets and read about the vision God gave you concerning the walk. Have you completed the journey seven times yet? I am curious to know – I want to lift this up in prayer. Perhaps each step represents each child killed. You must finish what God gave you to do if we are going to get our nation back. Glory to His Name.

Soy de Argentina, estoy leyendo un libro de Jim W Goll en donde menciona su renuncia la pastorado para seguir el mandato del Señor. Dios bendiga mas abundantemente sus vidas. Gracias por luchar por los que no pueden manifestar sus ganas de vivir

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!
